In October 2019, the brand-new Silverstone Experience opened its doors to the public at the famous motor racing circuit.
Housed in a former Second World War RAF hangar, and seven years in the making, it allows visitors to journey through the history of motor sport and Silverstone’s fascinating heritage.
Watch this video to get a taste of the experience, with stories about illicit early racing and the only woman to win a Formula One race. You can also catch a glimpse of exhibits including original race stickers on a bedroom door.
The Silverstone Experience would not exist today if it weren’t for a £9.1m grant made possible by National Lottery players.
To say thank you, the fun-filled family attraction is taking part in the #ThanksToYou campaign that runs from 23 November until 1 December.
The Silverstone Experience is offering 1/3 off ticket prices every day until 1 December when you present a National Lottery ticket at the welcome desk.
And they are not the only ones – as a mark of gratitude for the £40billion raised for good causes, hundreds of National Lottery-funded projects are offering National Lottery players free entry or special offers. Visit the ThanksToYou website to see all the offers and find the nearest ones to you.
25 years of funding for heritage
Over the past 25 years, The National Lottery Heritage Fund has been the largest dedicated grant funder of the UK’s heritage. We’ve awarded £8bn to more than 44,000 projects across the UK.
